E! to Re-Enact Michael Jackson Trial

NPR reported this morning that E! network would be re-enacting each day of the Michael Jackson trial in its entirety one day after the fact, using the actual court transcripts. This to get around the ban on cameras in the courtroom for the trial.

No confirmation or information appears as of yet on E!’s website. It’s a very surreal idea but one that I suspect will be quite successful.
